than a week publicly after the killing. >> it'important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun, and will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired, but our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated, response to what had transpired in cairo. >> now, there are many possible explanations for why the administration took so long to budge from that line. everything from an excess of caution to the fog of war to incompetence or domestic politics. we don't have the answer nailed down on that. what we do have, though, is a collection of inconsistencies between the administration line and our own understanding of the facts. recall our exclusive reporting last night based on several sources that not one single fbi investigator has yet to even set ot at the crime scene in benghazi. that remains true tonight. yet when asked to comment, an american official told us that fbi investigators on the ground are not experiencing any roadblo
, two of the three organizations testifying today did not exist. and the third, the f.b.i., was a very different organization than it is today. focused on domestic crime as it had been for quite a while. obviously in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on america of 9/11, 2001, congress and the executive branch created the department of homeland security and then pursuant to the 9/11 commission recommendation created the national counterterrorism center. the f.b.i. essentially recreated itself into a first rate domestic counterterrorism intelligence agency. in addition to carrying out all its other responsibilities. in his absence we should thank director mueller for what i think is an extraordinary job he's done in overseeing this historic transformation and to thank the two of you, secretary napolitano, and director olsen, for what you have done together these changes represent the most significant reforms of america's national security organizations since the 1940's, at the beginning of the cold war. it's not coincidental since after 9/11 we understood we were facing a very diffe
f.b.i. agent has been to the consulate on benghazi, because of security concerns. those are just some of the new and shocking information we have for you tonight on the rapidly evolving story. here is chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge. >> reporter: two sources tell fox news that within 24 hours of the assault on the u.s. compound in benghazi, the evidence pointed to a terrorist attack carried out by al-qaeda. the u.s. intelligence community had strong leads to indicate the affiliate in north africa, working with a second group that ceased to establish islamic state. "no one believes that mortars and the rpgs were work of mob. no one. " >> it was a terrorist attack. >> reporter: asked when he reached the conclusion the defense secretary was vague. >> day after, or -- >> it took a while to really get the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> reporter: in addition to c.i.a. assessment before the acta, security in libya was deteriorating. in august, a defense department report on the rise of al-qaeda in libya there was another warning about islami
fbi agent echoed that sentiment. >> the countries of middle east believe there is a disengagement policy by the united states and that lack of leadership there or at least clarity on what our position is causing problems. i, if we all decide to rally around the video as the problem we're going to make a serious mistake and we're going to make i think diplomatic mistakes as we move forward if we think that is the only reason people are showing up at our embassy to conduct acts violence. bill: the romney campaign says the obama administration is failing to throughout that part of the world. heather: there is more trouble brewing between israel and iran as a nightmare scenario could be coming close to reality. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the iran will be the on the brink of nuclear capabilities in just six months. he use ad metaphor to describe the new emergency and claims that iran is developing nuclear power for peaceful purposes. listen to this. >> denies the holocaust, promises to wipe out israel and engages in terror throughout the world. like timothy mack say walking

to the september 11th attack, we can send f.b.i. agents to florida to check out the flight schools. it was in the united states and we are talking about a place where it is not safe to send an f.b.i. agent. why the f.b.i.? because they do the best forensics. they are best at figuring this stuff out. it is our intelligence and others that put more fact on top of that letting us get to the bottom of this. this is benghazi. you do not just go wandering in with 15 or 20 f.b.i. agent. >>neil: something collapsed but we will find out. you are right, joe. very go to see you. >> i think i know why this guy had to draw pictures for the united nations. a lot them are pretty stupid at the united nations. they can tax your patience especially when they tax your wallet. are you ready ? share everything by turning your smartphone into a mobile hotspot for up to 8 wifi-enabled devices at no extra charge. like the new droid razr m by motorola only $99.99. i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i got a medicare supplement insura
know, jarks, have you followed this -- everybody is waiting for the fbi to go to benghazi to find the people that killed our ambassador. but the fbi will not go to benghazi. they are in tripoli at our embassy there which has good security. they will not go to benghazi because the security is so awful. even now, 12, 14 days after the attack. so you have got to know that these al qaeda terrorist crazies, they knew that, and they were gunning for our ambassador and the white house was informed of it right away and they are covering that up, jack jacobs. >> it is absolutely true. now it's known the fbi is not only in benghazi, they are not going either. indeed it is even worse than that. there is a large number of witnesses whom they could interview in benghazi who will not go to tripoli to get interviewed by the fbi. they are very much concerned about their names being released, their families being in trouble. if they testify. they are not going anywhere. the fbi is not going to give any information from people who were on the ground and know what happened in benghazi. >> jennifer r
. passengers are still aboard that plane. the fbi has now been called in. and we understand that of course authorities are already searching the plane. on the phone for us is a former assistant secretary from the department of homeland security, juliette kayam. she now works for the "boston globe." thank you for joining us to help us understand why those passengers are still ond board that plane when the threat was some sort of liquid. >> what we don't know right now, this would be normally routine. one, they have to figure out the most important thing was this a hoax or not. the specificity that there's an individual on this plane, you know, makes it sound like there might be a little bit of -- i don't want to say, you know, a hockey behind it. because you tend not to get calls in like this with real terrorist attacks. and so they now have to figure out who that potential person is. so this is pretty routine. the fbi's involvement would be routine. we tend to forget, you know, that next weekend is the 11th anniversary of september 11. we have been focused on the conventions. and so there
. "helping." f.b.i. and others are on the ground in the early stages of the investigation. top priority here? find out whether the strike on the consulate was a planned assault by terrorists rather than a rampageing mob angry other antimuslim video. catherine is in washington, dc, first on the reported arrests. >> this afternoon, the intelligence community is trying to knock down the report. this question was put to the state department. i saw the press reports before i came down. i was not able to confirm them. obviously, it would be a good thing if we are moving forward on this. >> the state department confirmed the investigation in benghazi at consulate is led by the libyan authorities with f.b.i. agents on the ground because american citizens are dead. at least publicly the state department remains cautious when it comes to assigning blame. fox is told that two groups are part of the universe of suspects in the libyan attacks affiliated with al qaeda, the affiliate in north africa. one is the lifg, the libyan islamic fighting group banned under qadaffi and the other is a group, too, that
the scheme. the arrest comes less than two months after the fbi raided the mayor's home and city hall. at that time mack said he didn't do might go wrong. >> hundreds of hours of rourd pages of transcripts all from one book that details some of the most intense moments of last summer's debt ceiling battle. the price of politics gives a behind the scenes look at the negotiation ts between the president and congress al leaders. brianna, how is the white house reacting? >> reporter: they reacting. will they were asked about it today. this book the price of politics by bob woodward which will be out tomorrow, in it bob woodward says essentially that president obama and particularly house speaker john boehner and house republicans really punted on tough decisions that would have put the american economy on better economic, better fiscal footing. and today when jay carney the president carney was asked, i defended president obama, not a surprise, saying he really helped overt a calamity which would have been a default if the debt ceiling had not been increased. here's what he said about. >>
. they have the fbi on the ground. two of the militias have been disbanded already. tremendous progress is being made. give them time to figure it out and do what is right. i think that is the respectful thing to do here. megyn: mark, the administration was very quick to come out and say mitt romney spoke too soon on this, and campaign spokesperson for obama came out and said he shoots first and aims later which was picking up on his boss's remarks when. it comes to this issue what happened in libya, is it fair, is it not a fair question to ask whether that is what this administration did in sending susan rice out there to tell all of this is about a video when they had other information? kirsten powers was on our show yesterday saying this was either gross incompetence or this was a deliberate attempt to mislead. >> she is absolutely right. look, we now know that within 24 hours they knew that it was a, that it was a terrorist attack. al qaeda was involved and five days later susan rice went on national television on five sunday shows and said it had to do with a protest on the ground
. but they have to try to check this out. there's a heavy dose of skepticism among a lot of retired fbi agents who directly worked on this case saying why in the world wod the mob have buried someone in the middle of this nice neighborhood, why would they have done that? they believe that whoever got rid of hoffa incinerated his body, literally, years and years ago. but there is a quick mob connection here. a bookie for detroit mobster john giacalone did used to live in this house years ago so maybe they'll follow through with this lead. 2006, i was 40 miles away from here when the fbi followed up another what they called credible lead and dug up a horse farm. ultimately, finding nothing. perhaps things will be different this time, soledad. >> perhaps they will. or perhaps not. susan candiotti for us this morning. let's go right to dan moldea, the author of "the hoffa wars." he's been following the story since jimmy hoffa disappeared. he talked with this new tipster recently. susan candiotti just was showing us pictures of a horse farm being dug up. same reason. how legitimate do you think this ti
exclusive. we are now getting word, fbi agents haven't even stepped foot on the crime scene in benghazi where those four americans were killed including the u.s. embassy to libya. all of this as fears intensify al qaeda's setting up shop in libya. but i had already gone through menopause. these symptoms may be nothing... but they could be early warning signs of a gynecologic cancer, such as cervical, ovarian, or uterine cancer. feeling bloated for no reason. that's what i remember. seeing my doctor probably saved my life. warning signs are t the same for everyone. if you think somet's wrong. see your doctor. ask about gynecologic cancer. and gee inside see your doctor. ask about gynecologic cancer. romney: "itime to stand uprove to the cheaters" tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chese tiresated american jobs... it was psident obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. tty attacked obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our workers." how can mitt romney take on the cheaters... when he's taking their side? ♪ ♪ hi dad.
, the fbi knew that there were two al-qaeda guys in the united states, these two guys end up being two of the hijackers. and we have to find them and they assign one relatively new fbi agent to find him. >> eliot: this is where it is so easy and the other side will say it is easy to look back and cast blame. it is an effort to figure out how do you do better next time. had they looked at the 70, as you now say 70 ceo briefings listen, we have to get every shred of evidence connect the dots, something might have been different. >> it could have been. i'm never going to say if they had done this, they would have stopped 9-11. >> eliot: you don't want to say that because there's no utility to it. >> it is also unnotable. on some levels, transitions between about thesies are dangerous -- between about thesies are bangs. if people aren't willing to say maybe we've been out of the loop. maybe we need to pay a lot more attention. and there was just not that level of humility in the early days. and that was a serious prob
of the second highest pressing political documentary in history say they had to notify the fbi after someone illegally applauded the movie on youtube over the weekend. there were also false internet rumors that fox is was going to air the fall movie for free. as a result, the film took in less than a million dollars of the weekend, down 27% from the previous weekend. the fbi is investigating. we call the motion picture association of america for, because they have to be concerned about intellectual property rights and trademark of creativity. for some reason they have not gotten back to a set. we are waiting. we are waiting. we will probably be waiting for some time. meanwhile, president obama receiving a not so helpful endorsement from the elite of hollywood during a concert last night in washington. madonna took a moment to tell her fans to support president obama. [inaudible] lou: don't you love it when we see in popular culture the appeal to the highest common denominator. it's inspiring, really, isn't it? no word yet on whether -- well, there is no word yet on whether president obama ap
to yemen to secure the compound n libya, an fbi investigation into the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi under way. sunday, libyan and u.s. officials had two very different versions of what happened. >> the way these perpetrators acted and moved, this leaves us with no doubt that this was preplanned. >> what happened in ben gghazi s a reaction to what had transpired hours before in cairo. >> as you see, two different versions of what supposedly happened in benghazi. protests plead spread into the weekend, the romney campaign argued the crisis exposes a stark contrast between the two candidates. >> if we project weakness, they come. if we are strong, they are -- our adversaries will not test us and our allies will respect us. >> ambassador susan rice fired back yesterday on "meet the press." >> with respect to this i think, vacuous charge of weakness, we have des mated al qaeda. osama bin laden is dead. i spend every day up at the united nations where i have to interact with 192 other countries, i know how with the united states is viewed. >> but the white house is facing grow
that i am comfortable that the secretary of state, the secretary of defense, the fbi, promptly launched a thorough and searching investigation on the ground in benghazi to learn exactly what happened and what was a chaotic and confusing situation. and i am confident that we continue to have a leadership role in the world as the president laid out today in front of the united nations, rooted in american values, but that will not louis lambist jihadist terrorists to push us out of the region. >> so when you say you're confident in what is happening on the ground, let me put the question directly to you, then. why is that when cnn was in the consulate days after the horrible attack, they found that the -- the diary of ambassador stevens' thoughts and his fears. and not t u.s. investigators. why weren't they the ones who found something like that, which was -- was just lying there? >> that's an excellent question. we did not get briefed on the specifics of cnn's acquisition and use of the private diary of ambassador stevens. that wasn't one of the topics on which we were briefed. that does
's the latest in washington. >> the fbi has yet to enter benghazi because of the dangerous security climate there. senator corker who sits on the foreign relations committee wants to know why, and he fired off a letter to intel chief james clapper, calling the situation bizarre and demanding answers and says in part, 18 days ago, the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. and what has changed in libya in such a short time. is that even fbi agents and our personnel entered the city. and the u.n. ambassador susan rice who has said a few days after the attack, that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising and the long video. >> and we have reports now that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack and yet, they sent her out, to say things that were absolutely false and continued to do so. and then, as mccain says the violence in lib rah clicks, with the story and al-qaeda diminished. >> for its part. the administration claims the situation in benghazi was so complex, they didn't know for sure that it was a terrorist att
-- those systems are at the end of their life and tsa will be spending money on them. john pistol is an fbi man, a deputy director of the fbi before he became a tsa administrator. the tsa and minister was basically a vacant position -- there was an acting deputy there for a year-and-a-half of the obama administration. when that they did get somebody in there, everybody agreed he was a great man for the job, and his stated goal is to make it tsa smarter. as a man who came on board the fbi and saw the fbi's intelligence role grow after 9/11, he wanted to do the same with tsa and have them be a little bit leaner, smarter, and a manifestation of that, for example, is the initiative and they have called pre-check. if they know you're flying patterns and history, they will now you are not a terrorist. they are trying to build a trusted traveler system so they can focus their resources on people date no less about. host: let's hear some comments the head of the tsa made last month in washington talking about the type of terrorist threat that concerns him the most. [video clip] >> the concern i hav
that's so exciting they make into tv shows and movies: there's the army, the f.b.i., nasa. spending on all of that, it's actually shrinking. in fact, by 2022, federal spending on everything except social security and health care, is set to fall from its historical average of about 11% of our economy to less than 8%. it will soon be smaller as a share of the economy than back in 1974 when richard nixon resigned. so where is the spending growing the fastest? the real budget challenge is you. and it's me. and, the older we get, the more expensive we become for the federal government. it's no coincidence then that the programs driving our debt are medicare and social security. aby boomers retire and tap into the programs, there's no relief in sight. spending on social security and medicare will almost double over the next ten years. it's the fast-growing part of the budget. >> i think the american people increasingly understand that we have incredibly severe budget problems and they cannot be solved by getting rid of foreign aid and waste fraud and abuse that most of the money that the
do not appear to be learning from the past." now, you were at the fbi in 1998. what do you make of that? are we not learning the lesson from the past? >> frankly i think that's ridiculous. we've learned a lot from those lessons. but there's a much different situation here in libya than there was in kenya and tanzania in 1998. >> how so? >> you don't have a developed government for one thing. >> libyan government. >> the libyan government that doesn't have the robust law enforcement, intelligence, military forces to be able to -- just come into power. trying to deal with a few number of insurgents that are going to cause trouble no matter what. >> the people will ask, what can they do. because frankly it was the united states embassy we're talking about which supposedly is united states tear toirks at least the inside of it. >> right. but internationally, host country always provides the outer perimeter security. so if they failed to do that, then if there's enough people causing an attack it's going to be like the alamo. are going to be able to overwhelm an embassy or consulate.
